Blighty, a Pembrokeshire firm that offers antiques from the 18th-20th centuries, features an array of 19th century Welsh quilts on its website.

Such textiles are known for their graphic designs and their rich use of colour, as demonstrated in this example from late in the century.

The patchwork quilt is made in the vernacular fashion with scraps hand stitched together. It is offered for £1100.
